I don't get Chrono24

I just saw a watch I've been lusting after for the last few weeks for sale on Chrono24. The seller wants a $263 markup for the exact same watch that can be had directly from the manufacturer's website.

Agreed, I don't find eBay any better( especially popular pre-owned brands, cheaper new most times)... Heard the tales of Huge Bargains, I mostly just see Huge markups. 💸. For the most part I find manufacturers sites ( with promos and sales)a and AD more than fair (not including Luxury brands, whole other conversation) 🤔

C24 takes a cut, so I've found prices need to be and can be negotiated, especially if you find the seller and pay outside of the system.

I have to be honest, I've had a good experience with C24. I saved a search for a rare Seiko last year and pounced when one came up at a good price. And when it arrived with a very, VERY stiff bezel, I asked the seller to give me 30€ for a new click spring before I released the full payment.

I've given up using eBay. One bad experience after another.

C24 is always has high list prices but I think their is some positives that dealing with sellers their are more trustworthy. Especially if engaging with overseas dealers.

But C24 also caters to the wealthy shopper and not necessarily collectors and enthusiasts.

I do find more bargains on eBay - but c24 has a better range and most sellers seem ok with a haggle..

Chrono24 has been great for me. Find the right seller and negotiate accordingly. :)

They focus on luxury, buy I’ve found some good deals on entry level watches, specially coming from local dealers with fair pricing across Europe: Spain, Italy, France, Germany and Sweden.

You can negociate. When you decided on the watch shoot 20% under asking price. In this market you might get it. Shop around a bit I am sure you will find some deals

·

As a buyer and seller on Chrono24, I will usually look at the top, bottom and then equivalent watches to mine and price accordingly. I never buy or sell for the advertised price. You expect some negotiation. Unless many of the same

Model are going for overs and/or it’s rare they are probably expecting to sell it for less than RRP.

I’ve only had a positive experience on C24 and have picked up some bargains along the way. They’re not the only place to shop, so if I don’t find what I’m looking for at my preferred price I just look elsewhere. It always pays to shop around anyway.

This. Just like Uber Eats, platform cut is factored into the price.
